  1. Single-click remove from collection

    There is currently no way to remove photos from single collections - at least not with Edge. There is an icon that appears on collected photos. Make that icon clickable with a menu allowing that photo to be removed from that collection.

    • Allow Google Tag Manager to track clicks on the BUY button

      It would be helpful for those using SmugMug to sell their work via Adwords or other funnelling methods to track clicks on the BUY button.

      Deeper level data tracking such as which images' BUY button was clicked on, how long the viewer stayed in this purchase area etc. Which products within the image page they viewed, Canvas, Metal, Paper, Keepsakes etc.

      This would allow sellers to gain a deeper insight to their customers' behaviours. We might find data that will help us tweak our prices and/or products to make more sales.

      • Need a global share button on the contacts page please.

        it's not unique, it is what I have been used too in Phanfare, and I am certain it won't be difficult for your Smug Mug heroes to create. I can't believe it doesn't already exist.

          • Undo Sorting (revert back to previous manual sort)

            Undo a gallery sort. Say I've been manually sorting photos in a gallery, but want to try one of the predefined sorts, like sort by date taken. If I don't like that sort, I'd want to go back to my manual sort. Right now, no way to do that.

            • Add Organization and Profile Editing to the Mobile Apps

              The mobile app is missing many obvious features:
              - Ability to buy prints from the mobile app
              - Ability to organize galleries and edit photos from the mobile app
              - Ability to see and edit bio, etc, from the mobile app

              The mobile version of the site in the browser has some of these features, and yet it keeps popping up with an ad for me to use the app instead, which does NOT have these features. You shouldn't be pushing a mobile app instead of the site if it doesn't do most of the things that the site does.

              • Charge ZERO commission on print sales

                My SmugMug busines account costs me £240 at current conversion rates (plus foreign currency transaction charges), and charges 15% on all sales, including digital downloads (which is just stupid, because if a client is paying £600 for a gallery, am I going to pay £90 for them to download it, or send it to them via wetransfer for free?).

                Increasingly competitors offer the features that I chose SmugMug for, but without the commission. The leader seems to be Zenfolio. Everything I want is in their Pro UK account for £192 per year, with no commission at all.

                I have never…

                • change to black text on white background in the organize, content update pages, etc. etc.

                  i hate working on the black backgrounds and white text. Really difficult to read, especially if your eyesight isn't perfect. Puts me off so much it's taken me two years to start really customizing my site.

                  • Make it possible to modify the order when set to proof delay.

                    Allow orders to be modified during proof delay (isn't that the whole point of it?).

                    Photographers should have the ability to change orders with customer's approval. If someone orders 100 prints and chooses glossy instead of matte, I should be able to change that.
                    If they choose 8x10, I should be able to modify it to 8x12 because of poor cropping. Heck, I'd rather absorb the $1 different than make my client spend anther hour redoing the order and give them the larger size for the same price.

                    I've heard the argument that you can't charge something different than the…

                    • Allow customizing of contact invitation emails

                      The email your system sends when inviting a contact to access a gallery (e.g. as used in the Client Area functionality) is pretty awesome. It would be nice to be able to brand the email and change it's message content. However, at the absolute bear minimum, can we at least have the ability to change how it refers to US? The email reads "Great news! dtrimble has invited you...". It looks amateurish and a bit silly to say "dtrimble", which is also what shows in the from header. It would be super useful to be able to say my full…

                      • add additional url to site

                        If I have a smugmug page, businessname.smugmug.com
                        and I change my business name to newbusinessname.smugmug.com all of the old gallery links ive sent to clients would break, right? Requiring me to send hundreds of emails!

                        So I want to be able to add a new one, so both businessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 and NEWbusinessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 would work and point to the same page.

                        • Allow Visitors to Rate Photos, then Sort Galleries by their Rating

                          Please offer a sorting and rating system. It would be great if as the clients are looking through their images they could rate each and then sort by the rating. This would make it easier to cull through the images. I know that they can click on the stars, but it doesn't seem like they can be sorted.

                          • Add a displayable 'folder description' to folders

                            We badly need a 'description' field in Folders to provide summary information to viewers.

                            The workaround - to customise each folder with a text content block - is simply not workable for sites with many folders as it's a lot of work, and risks breaking the uniform look and feel.

                            This is one feature which is edging me back to Zenfolio... Please please add this feature.

                            • Preserve Creation Dates on Zipped Gallery Files

                              When downloading a gallery (zip file), the creation dates get changed to when the file was zipped (on smugmug's end). Thus, in Finder I can't sort by the original creation dates anymore. I could have used WinZip for PC, to preserve creation dates as they get unzipped, on my end. But on SmugMug's end, is there a way to zip the files, with creation date preservation in mind? Thank you.

                                    • Video Backdrop

                                      I would really appreciate if the Video Backdrop didn't get so compressed, and have such low quality. A lot of people have faster internet now that can support automatic HD video playback. I've seen other websites like http://www.shainblumphoto.com/ that have this feature. I would really appreciate if smugmug would update this.

                                      • Sync Lightroom Folder/Gallery hierarchy to SmugMug

                                        I've spent several years setting up a hierarchy of folders in Lightroom. I'd like to easily replicate this hierarchy on Smugmug.

                                        As far as I can tell, I can sync my SmugMug Folders, Galleries and Photos to Lightroom. But I cannot sync in the other direction

                                        • Customize ZIP file names for easier client downloads

                                          I use SmugMug for many business needs, including sending ZIP files to clients. This is especially so when I'm contracted by real estate brokerages.

                                          Many clients (especially those lacking technology skills) have major issues finding the downloaded ZIP files. As a way to make the process easier for these clients, is there a way that I can customize the name of the ZIP file instead of it being computer-generated by your system? If there were a way to name the ZIP file by the gallery name, that would reduce a lot of clients headaches. These folks don't understand how to…
